A great diversity of online dating services currently exists.
Some have a broad membership base of diverse users looking for many different types of relationships.
Already, Bumble has established itself as an unworkable venue for guys accustomed to carpet-bombing women with “Hey baby” and “Nice (body part)” messages.
It’s important to bear in mind that the messages you send a match are the first impression they’re going to get of you (apart from the information contained in your profile).
Here is my question: Are men ok with women sending introductory emails to them? In some ways, I see a email hello similar to a come-hither look at a bar, etc.
but in other ways it seems very aggressive and therefore a turnoff to most men. Dear Jane, Your question brings up two of the most common mistakes that women make in online dating: 1) Waiting for Men to Write to You First 2) Telling Him What You Like About His Profile First things first: Men LOVE it when women write to them. If you have an attractive photo, interesting essay, and you’re in his target demographic, why WOULDN’T he be excited to hear from you?
Once you’ve written a message, read it back and make sure there’s something in there that shows it’s meant especially for the person you’re contacting.
Personal information The first exchanges of messages are simply to establish whether there’s a mutual interest and if you both feel it’s worth arranging to meet up.
Most services offer digital messaging, while others provide additional services such as webcasts, online chat, telephone chat (VOIP), and message boards.
